      Globex Risk Management Enhancements: Inline Credit Controls

      In Q2 2017, in addition to existing risk management controls, CME Group will offer optional, more granular pre-trade risk management capability through the In-Line Credit Control (ICC) tool.

      The ICC tool allows Clearing Member Firms and Executing Firms to set daily position limits for CME Globex, per product, at the account level through Account Manager.

      The new functionality will feature:

      • Daily quantity position limits applied per product at the account level.
      • Positions reset to flat at the end of the day. Good 'Til Cancel (GTC) and Good 'Til Date (GTD) orders will roll-over to be calculated in the next day’s working orders.
      • No latency differential; all orders are subject to the same ICC processing.
      • Both Clearing Member Firm and Executing Firm Risk Admins can register accounts and set limits.
        • The most restrictive limit applies.
        • Clearing Member Firm and Executing Firm Risk Admins can view each other's account limits.
        • Clearing Member Firms and Executing Firms cannot change the other's limit.
      • Email alerts can be set up when pre-set threshold level breaches occur (for example, at 80%).

      See more on Viewing and Managing Inline Credit Control Limits and Configuring Alerts and Policies for Inline Credit Controls.

      For registered client systems, a new or cancel/replace order that violates specified position limits will be rejected. CME Globex will send a Session Level Reject (tag 35-MsgType=3) message including tag 58=<Reject Reason>.

      Reject Reason Tag 58-Text
      Position Limit Violation Position Limit Violation for Account: <Account>, Position Increase: <position> makes position above the BUY Position Limit: <Limit> by amount: <Amount>. Limit set by CMF for Product Code: <Product Code>
